HCS Pro League Summer 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Hey. Not sure if this is the right place but I just started playing Halo and watching the pros again after following MLG for Halo 3. 

 

I watched the X Games and noticed they use ARs and stuff. Was that just for X Games or is that how the game is played now? Thanks.

That's how the game is played now. May I ask why you decided to follow Halo again? Just curious.

I just love the game and it's cool to see how everything has evolved over the years. The past few years I was busy with school and studying abroad and now that I'm home it's a lot of fun to play

That is an interesting development haha for sure. Thanks for the answer

 

It's by no means accepted though -- a lot of people don't like autos or the other changes that have been made. There are arguments made by both sides, but the bottom line is that the game is still fundamentally fun to watch and play. It's just that it could be better depending on who you ask.

You're lucky, when I came back from school and abroad like you I bought a 360 and H3 just to realize that had Reach come out.. and that MLG dropped it.

As someone who will be getting back to it, with no halo 5 experience, I feel like autos should be a coveted weapon (think smg & I think storm rifle). So when you see radar + numerous AR battles, it doesn't look as fun as it could be.

When it comes to Breakout I feel like the only way it would work would be to turn it into a class based, round based mode. I know it wouldn't be traditional Halo in the slightest, but I think this could be a fun mode

 

Loadout 1: BR/Pistol

Loadout 2: Shotgun/Pistol

Loadout 3: Sniper/Pistol

Loadout 4: DMR/Pistol

 

Only 1 player per loadout.

 

The gametype could be 2 plot Extraction but have it play like traditional SnD. Attacking team arms one and if it extracts, they win the round. If the defense "converts" it, they win the round. Radar disabled. It probably wouldn't be anywhere near HCS but I think I'd play the shit out of it.

 

 

Okay carry on with relevant discussion :P

That's pretty lame considering they do a great job of not recognizing what their actual brand is.

Provided that there is consistency and defined roles I would be fine with it. Probably would never be accepted globally in an Halo eSports fashion but if the teams started an even footing and there was a decent balanced meta to it I'd be down.

Seems silly but esports is being sold to the high school age. Astro for example, probably figures a bulk of their sales to come from parents looking to get their kid birthday or christmas presents etc. Now imagine an over sensitive mom catching wind that YP sponsors the game her little angel plays. Also, esports is trying hard to be recognized as legitimate and YP just isn't good in that pr sense. I'd probably do the same thing.

here's some #content from Towey from the coach's perspective.  There's 3 of these videos he just put out, so if you're curious about what a top coach brings to a team or if you want to improve your coaching you should check it out.

YP isn't going to exit the scene, they are going to fight and worse case they will create a shell company and form a new org

It wouldn't matter lol, it is not like everyone is going to forget that it is YP. In a way it would make things worse if someone wanted to attack ESL and esports because it would seem like ESL was trying to be deceptive. That mom might be pissed to find out esports "supports" porn but think if she read a story that was like "did you know that team x is ACTUALLY supported by porn!" She would be extra pissed because the apparent deception.

Please tell me you're joking, and you don't really want a Halo YP team.

I agree, I believe eSports should take as many sponsors as they can.

 

I mean, they sponsor a womens CS:GO team, not many Orgs do that.
